How to fix boot logo in Ubuntu lucid 10.04 (splash screen)

Since I started using Ubuntu Lucid the logo in the splash screen always look kinda ugly to me but I never gave it to much thought, until today when I saw this article today in softpedia. Now the Ubuntu logo looks goods during boot, I'll posted here for future reference like everything else.


sudo apt-get install v86d
gksu gedit /etc/default/grub
- Replace the following line (line number 9):
with this one:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset video=uvesafb:mode_option=1280x1024-24,mtrr=3,scroll=ywrap"
- Replace the following line (line number 18):
with this one:
Back in terminal:
gksu gedit /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
When the text window appears, add the following line at the end of the file:
uvesafb mode_option=1280x1024-24 mtrr=3 scroll=ywrap
Back in terminal:
echo FRAMEBUFFER=y | sudo tee /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash
sudo update-grub2
sudo update-initramfs -u
